Episode of Ben Watson's weekly radio show Late Lunch With Out To Lunch inspired by Up the Dreary Slope by "Thomas Horace Whitmer", the lightly-fictionalised autobiography of the music writer known as Penny Reel, doowop-, ska- and reggae-afficionado - and scourge of the hacks who rode to fame by lauding ungroovy rubbish like the Smiths, New Order and U2. The attack on Julie Burchill is alone worth the price of admission, and Reel's writing about music, curries and London streets glows with that rare commodity, Telling It Like It Is. "I'm Still Waiting", a 7" release by Delroy Wilson, Reel's favourite singer, is played, along with a cover of Swamp Dogg's "Synthetic World" by Jimmy Cliff, Swamp Dogg's own "Hey Renae" and King Short Shirt's "Antigua". Although tempted to run an entire hour of the brilliant music Reel championed (and lacking Reel's amazing record collection!), Watson does not desert his pitch, and includes his own Word Jazz, Cloughie's "Edgy Fading Sign", Charles Mingus's "Fables of Faubus", Jair-Rohm Parker Wells' "Face is the Space" from Stand Your Ground (MussoMusic, 2016), Evil Dick's "Evil Gamma Post Miles" (free sax: Dave Jackson; dot sax: Tim Clamp) from "The Gamma Pages", and "Vukey Stick in Kitchen", where Out To Lunch washes up to guitar originally improvised by James Wilson of Music With My Insane Friend to the spoken word of George Vuke, commentary for an educational cine film about animal digestion. Integrity, runs the polemic, can surface in any genre ... The graphic poem is "Were Off Tea".
